Best Inexpensive Dry Skin Care Products You Can Buy – Dr. Crutchfield on ABC Channel 5

Well John, with winter weather here- so is that dry skin. So are you itching to find out how to prevent it? Dermatologist Dr. Charles Crutchfield joins us this morning. Thank you so much for being here. Thanks for having me. We appreciate it

If we don’t deal with this dry skin right away, it can lead to some very serious problems?

Dry Skin Winter 2014- 2015Absolutely, dry skin, the nice thing about Winter in Minnesota is they’re are good treatments that are inexpensive that you can really have nice skin throughout the Winter.

You’re right. Without proper skin protection and care you can have some problems. Let’s talk about some of these things here these aren’t the high priced items right?

That’s the key. You can have a good quality healthy skin in the winter without having to pay expensive prices.

There are four principles I look at: 1 gentle cleansing, 2 moisturization, 3 protection, and 4 correction. That means a gentle cleanser like Vanicream, Cetaphyl, or Dove. Good moisturizers like Saravay or Aveeno

You can also protect with good sunscreens SkinCeuticals, Neutrogena things like that. And then you can correct with the new anti-oxidants

Aveeno has that, and so does Eucerin.

Basically when you are looking through all of these, you recommend these Aveeno we get at the drug store.

Yeah absolutely. Once again, you don’t have to pay a high price to have good quality skin care products.

What’s your other advice? We have some pictures too of some more severe examples of what can happen to dry skin if you don’t a correct things.

Yes. Now this is a condition called Eczema and this comes from having just dry skin on the legs are not moisturized. When it gets to this point you probably need the help of a board-certified dermatologist

Okay, and your website is www.CrutchfieldDermatology.com you have a lot of other tips for people?

Yes. Lots of other tips, and we have a full list of all the products and also some other helpful information the last picture on there’s the Minnesota Winter foot and we have advice on how to take care that that’s a problem I see my office all the time

Yeah that is common. All right! Thank you so much Dr. Crutchfield we appreciate it

It’s nice to know that we don’t have to spend too much money.

How To Improve Your Dry Skin During Cold Months

Dr. Crutchfield, what can I do improve the quality of my skin, especially in these dry winter months?

www.dandavisstudios.comGreat question. Walk into the skin care/cosmetic area of any major department store, and it is dizzying to see the hundreds, if not thousands, of choices for skin care. To complicate matters, there are sales people wearing white coats, looking like either mad scientists or doctors, who are all too eager to recommend their company’s multi-step skin care program.

Even in our homes, we are flooded with late-night infomercials touting the latest products that promise to solve your skin-care woes. The good news is, smart skin care can be a simple four-step process: cleansing, hydration, protection and correction.

1.  Cleansing

Cleansers with either no detergent or a very low detergent value help preserve the natural oils in your skin. You don’t need harsh cleansers or exfoliants; just use a cotton washcloth. Your skin will naturally exfoliate itself. Continue reading How To Improve Your Dry Skin During Cold Months
